Become A Sponsor

New York Outrigger needs sponsors to help continue our mission to provide affordable recreational and cultural opportunities in New York’s waterways through the sport of outrigger canoeing.

How does your organization benefit from sponsoring New York Outrigger?


As a sponsor, you will associate your company with one of the fastest growing water sports in the world as well as introduce people to recreational opportunities of New York’s underutilized waterways.

Cultural Support

Your support signifies your company’s support of a cultural organization dedicated to educating and preserving the rich heritage of Polynesia, enhancing your company’s image while helping to enrich the local community.


“Kokua” is the Hawaiian word for “help”. Your support will help NYO, a volunteer-driven, non-profit educational organization, in its commitment to provide the safe environment, instruction, equipment and camaraderie needed to enjoy the sport of outrigger canoeing for New Yorkers young and old.

Since 1996, the Chelsea-based operation has helped educate thousands of New Yorkers to be safe, confident paddlers and reached millions of others through high profile media coverage. New York Outrigger continues its community mission of providing affordable recreational and cultural opportunities through the sport of outrigger canoeing.

Enclosed is a sponsorship form that explains the sponsorship levels in more detail. Please make checks payable to New York Outrigger, a 501C-3 [donations are fully tax-deductible]. We are more than happy to discuss your company’s sponsorship further – your support is always welcome.

We are confident that we can help build brand awareness through the paddling community and beyond for your business.

Much aloha for your consideration. We look forward to seeing you on the water!!
